I Asked Military To Go To Ejura – A/R Minister Simon Osei Mensah ‘Confesses’

The source of an order for Military intervention in Ejura which led to the death of two people has finally been disclosed.

The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah speaking in an interview on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’ said the order came from him.

According to him, he received intel that the youth intended to set the police station and other houses on fire and so as the head of REGSEC he called for the Military to ensure nothing of that sort takes place.

I am the one who called the military to go to Ejura after I had intel that the irate youth were going to burn the police station and two other houses . . . So I called on the military to protect citizens and property,” he divulged.

Two dead

Reacting to the death of the two, the Regional Minister said “it’s unfortunate it ended in the death of two people but this is not the first time soldiers have been called on to assist the police in enforcing law and order. The death is unfortunate and sad…but let’s look at the other issues and deal with them wholistically”.

Political intrusion

Meanwhile, Simon Osei Mensah believes had there been no political intrusion from the #fixthecountry movement, things would not have escalated.

The politicians should also take some of the blame; if the #fixthecountry campaigners didn’t allege that their member has been killed, things would have taken a different turn…Kaaka is a liberal person and not part of the #fixthecountry campaigner; he fights for the development of Ejura.
